  • sick days in NJ New Jersey

    my employer only gives a couple of days off for vacation or personal days each year for full time employees. My question is that if you are sick, can he force you to work. If a coworker is contagious with the flu or something, then I don't want them to come to work. Also, I am fine with the sick days being non paid days, but can I be fired for calling out sick? Is there some law about employees coming to work with known contagious diseases, such as pink eye, the flu, scabies, strep throat, etc.?

    Yes, you can be fired for calling out sick even though coming in sick may not be the most reasonable thing to do.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
